Hawaiian quilt show 7/11. Animals and boats.  Both are considered 'kapu' or taboo by quilters of Hawaiian heritage.  I was taught that 'animals are too restless to be held still in a quilt' and 'you will have restless sleep if sleep under a quilt with animals'.  Most Hawaiian patterns featuring animals are designed by people who are not Hawaiian and have become popular within the last 20yrs or so.
